Student summit to discuss cyber bullying
CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- A group of high school students meet at Cincinnati State this week to talk about the cyber bullying and come up with ways to prevent it.
Three days, that's how long these 200 high school students will spend it talking about and breaking down the topic of cyber bullying.
The group has three objectives -- to define the topic, debate whether or not it should be a crime and then come up with some strategies to prevent cyber bullying from happening.
Then, on the final day of this leadership summit, the students will present their proposed solutions.
This is especially important for this age group, because the latest government data shows 20% of all high school students have experienced cyber bullying.
The summit started on Tuesday and continues through Thursday afternoon. It's all part of the trio upward bound program.
